Summer Shows

Things have been busy lately but there have been some bright spots. I have recently discovered tv shows that have brought some much needed laughter :)

The first is Duck Dynasty, yes I know but hear me out. I am not an avid fan of reality tv which is why it took me awhile to see what the show was actually about. They are interesting family to say the least and while they do get distracted by outdoor adventures and random projects, they do come together and support each other as a family and that is really nice to see. Especially the older generation, the grandparents teaching and instilling values in their grandchildren, it makes me wish I lived closer to my family that's for sure.

I also read Phil's book, Happy, Happy, Happy and it was very interesting to learn how he and his siblings grew up and how he and Kay started their family young, and how they struggled and eventually came to have a personal relationships with God. I never get tired of hearing people's testimony about how God changed their life. Phil is passionate about the outdoors and it was such a great reminder to see how God can use your passion to touch to people. Phil combines his passion for God and ducks by doing speaking engagements that include a sermon and duck call demonstrations. Anyway, it was really inspiring and a good reminder that God can use whatever circumstances you're in and whatever you're passionate about to reach other people.

My second new discovery is a little more silly, Adventure Time. A show about a boy and his trusty dog as they go on adventures and help those in need. I love all the different lands, and characters, it's pretty cute and kinda random. I finally decided to rent on Netflix because of Chantal's work (aka PonyChops) she has painted a few Adventure Time themed items, and her stuff was so cute and happy I had to see what all the fuss was about. I'm glad I did, I may be older but I still like to get lost in a cartoon every now and then.

the gang's all here

Ponychops awesome work
